Well, this is an odd news story from the world of Canadian art… A group of ten J.E.H. MacDonald paintings that were literally buried for more than 30 years are going to be on exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery this fall, never having been shown to the public before.
“The Self Practice” is a short documentary, looking at the process behind Jen Mann’s artworks; colorful and vibrant oil paintings which delve into the deep questions of life as she explores the idea of self and identity. Watch Mann’s process, and hear her thoughts, as she prepares for, and completes her series “Q&A”, a solo show at Toronto’s Neubacher Shor Contemporary.
“the artist is always asking for someone to love them…they are saying, look at my work and you will know me, like… the true me.”- Mann
